Buyback of Land

If the government was serious about "saving the Daintree" and genuinely green then they could commit to buying back land in the Daintree, years ago this was done but now they leave it to private organisations to beg and con the public in to giving tax deductable donations.

While the basic idea of buyback to save the rain forest sounds romantic and noble, for the Daintree community it means that with every block that is bought back there is one household less for the community and to share costs.
When residents want services and facilities then the government looks at how many properties can share the costs for this, and with less occupied properties a lot of things become commercially unviable.

There are individuals and organisations out there that will not be happy until they have bought up the entire Daintree and closed all roads, last year they celebrated the closure of one road and I am sure they are looking forward to more.

A few years ago when progress was made towards a power solution for the Daintree you would think that the greens would be happy to hear that the pollution from the diesel generators might be a thing of the past but no, they were not happy at all, they were worried land prices might go back to realistic level which would be inconvenient for their buyback plans.

cafnec concern over land prices

And now in 2018 there is unprecedented commitment from federal and state governments to make the Daintree a genuine eco-tourism destination and replace the hundreds of generators with a cleaner greener grid, but some of the local ultragreens are against it, citing fears of overdevelopment (planning scheme and buyback have removed that threat already) so clearly their main concern is that it could be incovenient for the never ending buyback if land prices move from peanuts to realistic level.


Celebrating the closure of a road after another block was bought back.

It is no wonder that people in the Daintree feel like they are not wanted and there is a conspiracy to drive them out, when the people who obstruct their basic infrastructure are doing this for the purpose of being able to buy up land for peanuts and talking of closing roads....
